Known as 犀鸟 xī-niǎo 'rhinoceros-birds', the hornbills are found in the far south of China, mainly Yunnan.

Anorrhinus tickelli (Brown Hornbill) has two subspecies: A. tickelli tickelli (Tickell's brown hornbill) and A. tickelli austeni (Austen's brown hornbill). Zheng Guangmei's list of birds, presumably following Peters, divides them into two species, A. tickelli (Rusty-cheeked Hornbill) and A. austeni (Brown Hornbill), of which A. austeni is marked as occurring in China. The Chinese names are:

A. austeni : 白喉犀鸟 bái-hóu xī-niǎo 'white-throated rhinoceros-bird'.
A. tickelli : 锈颊犀鸟 xiù-jiá xī-niǎo 'rusty-cheeked rhinoceros-bird'.
